This is your sister--is "Beedle" for me??? Yippee!!

I've been buying books as gifts but everytime I go in I buy something for myself too. In the past week I have picked up the following:

Twilight
Holidays On Ice
Corduroy's Christmas Surprise
Coraline
The Mermaid's Treasure (flap book)
Frank Lloyd Wright (mini book)

There are a few more but I can't remember the titles. One of these years I want to do ALL of my shopping at the bookstore. Wouldn't that be fun?

Dawn - She Is Too Fond Of Books

I have to laugh along at Ti's comment, "one for them, one for me, one for them, one for me" ... great way to shop! :)

I'm doing well with my challenge to buy books for the holidays. I'll finish up tomorrow with bookstore gift cards for those who I have yet to select a specific title.

I love that Blount essay - the truth with a smile!

i did borders gift certificates for my daughter's teachers. books for a nephew, books for 2 family friends, and another gift certificate for my dad. oh and i bought 2 copies of mommy's high heel shoes for nieces.....it is a great book about MOMS !!

I made my first foray today and found nearly everything I wanted...I just ran out of time. I'll go back again and get a few more things. I was so surprised at the difference of paying money for books rather than for useless crap. It didn't even hurt :)
Today I picked up the Bolt movie tie in, an Ironman graphic novel, Dragonsong, Dragondrums, The Hero and the Crown, Water for Elephants, Hawke, a George R.R. Martin book (not in the Ice and Fire series), and books on ballet, gymnastics and animal babies. It was a stellar trip to the bookstore if I do say so myself! Thanks for the inspiration!

I feel horrible, but I can't buy the books I want to. My credit card has made it a miserable experience to pay it off from Canada (not to mention the exchange rate), so I'm trying not to buy anything online, and I have to ship all my presents from BC to Ohio and NC, so the lighter the better. and books--well, you know how quickly those get heavy. I'm trying to throw in a few, but gracious, it doesn't take much.

LISTEN NOW TO AUTHORS DISCUSSING THEIR BOOKS

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
